Ladysmith police briefs: Potential flasher spotted near creek

  • May. 9, 2011 10:00 a.m.

Ladysmith RCMP received 79 calls between April 26 and May 2.

RCMP said a number of traffic complaints had been received about the intersection of Cloke Rd and Walkem Rd at the four-way stop. Officers found a large number of motorists are ignoring the stop and that many of the violators were residents of the area. Police said the current fine is $167.

April 26• Police were called after a man was reportedly exposing himself indecently by the creek near Grouhel Rd. The individual was described as white and between 50 to 60 years old.• Four hubcaps were taken from a vehicle. The owner was not sure if the crime occurred in the 3600 Block of Seaview Cr. or in Nanaimo.

April 27• A local resident reported to police that her credit card bill had $1,200 in charges from Ontario. People are reminded to check their accounts on a regular basis and to report unauthorized use.

April 28• A boat sounder and two downriggers were taken from a boat parked in the 600 block of Brown Ave. The total value was $2,200.• A front licence plate and its mounting bracket were taken from a vehicle on the 900 block of Malone Rd.

April 29• RCMP were called after someone reported seeing a BB gun being shot out of the front window in the 500 block of High Street. The RCMP confirmed a young person had a soft-air gun. RCMP had a conversation about the dangers and consequences of that type of behaviour. Many replicas cannot be distinguished from the real ones from a distance.

April 30• The manager of the Ivy Green Husky reported damage and theft of a card reader. An RCMP officer watched the video and observed video that showed a man drive a white truck into the card reader. The truck was reported stolen from Coastal Environment that morning from Chemainus. The incident happened around 4:30 a.m. A similar incident occurred earlier in the morning in Duncan.

May 1• A resident of Third Avenue reported their front driver-side tire had been slashed. The vehicle was parked at 10 p.m.
